  • Add just enough water to cook the meat. Drain excess water if any.
  • Cook the meat for two whistles.
  • Make small round balls from the dough.
  • Dip them in vegetable oil and roll thinly on a plate like a roti.
  • Cut circular pieces from it using a small bowl with sharp edge.
  • Put a teaspoon of filling in the centre.
  • Bring the edges together and pinch them.
  • Make pleats and twist them with fingers to ensure a tight seal.
  • Cook the momos in a steamer for about 10 minutes.
